You never want to be on the wrong side of 1 armed parent, let alone 2 armed parents. However, that’s exactly where 2 armed thugs found themsevles this week.
According to local media reports,
It all went down at 11:00pm last night on Newport near Neosho in the Bevo Mill neighborhood. Investigators say it all started with a teenaged girl being confronted by two armed men in front of her home. It ended with one of the suspects dead and another hospitalized.
St. Louis police say a 17 year old girl was outside of her home getting something from a car when two armed men confronted her and demanded that she return to her home.
The girl`s father saw the suspects walking his daughter toward the home. That`s when police say the teen`s father, a 34 year old man, got his gun and fired several shots at the suspects, hitting both of them. The girl`s mother, also 34, got another gun and fired a round as well, not hitting either suspect.
One suspect died at the scene. The second suspect managed to escape the armed parent duo, but was quickly taken into custody when he sought medical attention for his gunshot wound.
None of the family members were injured.
